    Thanks Phil this is very helpful. I do have a question I hope you don't mind answering, when looking at my upgrade options Logos says I have over 8100 resources yet my library says I have just over 8000. However, after yesterday's update my library now says I have 7,010 resources. Are resources being counted differently now?

    Thanks

    How many of the New Features are included in the L6 Starter package?  Specifically, is Send to Kindle included?

    Daniel Bender:

    This is because logos.com is counting datasets and such which the Library does not count as a resource. (EDIT: I mean as a resource you can open from your library.)

    Daniel Bender:

    Phil or someone at Logos should be able to answer this specifically, but I would suspect it is from resources merging.

    As I recall it has to do with the way the count datasets now, it inflates the resource count on the website vs the software, because the software counts only books.

    I've just downloaded my L6 Platinum and it is indexing as I write. (not holding breath, LOL) I opened Logos on my pad and it does not appear to have any changes. Not that I'm complaining, I enjoy how Logos works on my pad, but I just wondered if there is or will be any change to the software on my pad and phone.

    As a member of the ios beta (while I probably can't say what is changing), I can say they are always working to make it a better product.

    Any new resources that came with your purchase should be available in your library. But the iOS application itself hasn't changed.

    With the important caveat that the resource must be both mobile enabled (a publisher option) and supported by the mobile apps (the new interactive resources, for example, are a new type of resource that the mobile apps don't yet support reading)

    One of the new features I would like to have changed or modified is that ctrl or command-L no longer opens the Library in a floating panel. I'm sure the Logos programmers have figured that this is somehow better, but for those of us who always open the Library as a floating window, we need a keystroke option to do that. The library window has so much info and needs to be opened in full window to see everything, that I have never liked opening it in a narrow panel. Please add another keystroke so we can just open it as a floater to begin with and not go through extra steps.

    This has been seen and reported as a bug - https://community.logos.com/forums/t/92992.aspx - and the developers are looking into it.

    It is not consistently reproducible - some people see this behaviour and others don't.

    To Sean, Bob, Phil, Bradley, et al -

    Congratulations on Logos 6!  The launch experience, though not without glitches, was 100 times better than Logos 4 and Logos 5.

    SUGGESTION: The Psalms Explorer overview is super intuitive and useful.  I encourage you to extend that type of interface to:

    1. The Proverbs Explorer

    2. The entire Bible (explore by genre, authors, timeframe, language, theme, member of which canon, and any number of other attributes and tags)

    Thanks

    Peter

    Yes, these two (Proverbs and Psalms  explorer) are my favorites right now! Can't seem to get out of it. :D 

    However, the lagging is very bad. My laptop isn't all that old, either.  Just a heads up!

    What are you enjoying most -- the sorting of the Psalms and Proverbs by facet, or the structured analysis of the Psalms?

    What specific behavior should we offer for other books/genres? (In addition to letting you sort/organize the whole Bible by genre and other facets.)

    PL | Forum Activity | Replied: Mon, Nov 3 2014 6:35 PM | Locked

    I like both - I'm just now starting to make sense of the Psalms Parallelism display (just discovered you can hover over the labels and it give a tool tip to explain the legend - very nice!)

    But I definitely enjoy the faceting view even more, and would love to see the Proverbs as well as the whole Bible each have their own faceted explorers similar to the Psalm Explorer.

    Once we drill into a specific book of the Bible, can we have an expandable / collapsible / exportable / printable outline view of chapters or sections of that book?

    Thanks,

    Peter

    Bob,

    I'm enjoying the structured analysis of the Psalms most.

    My Hebrew is good enough that I don't need morph tagging, but I was surprised it isn't included. And I was really surprised that the Information window isn't activated by the Psalms Explorer.

    That said, I'm more than grateful for what you all in Bellingham have provided. (Please note that I said I was "surprised", not "disappointed".)

    Mark Barnes:
    When you run a search for {Section <Culture = Counsel>},

    Mmmm, Ok when I run this search I get 2,949 results in 2,788 articles in 284 resources (In 49 secs). I can see how this search could be helpful providing it had some sort of autocomplete built in, otherwise you would be guessing what concepts had been tagged....

    Mark Barnes:

    The purpose, therefore, is to return all the sections in your library that refer to that particular cultural concept.

    It is encouraging to me that this has been done for "counsel" makes me think they are going to do more!

    EVERYONE: Please stop posting on this thread. It was supposed to be locked as a sticky at the top of the Logos 6 forum, not to be a free-for-all with people posting questions about Logos 6. A bug in the forum software caused it to get unlocked when Phil edited the original post, and that bug also prevents moderators from locking it again. Joel has yet to see our reports about that bug and to fix it. But in the meantime, please restrain yourselves. Thanks!

    NO MORE POSTS PLEASE!
